  1. Tank Size: House Peacock Eels in an aquarium of at least 30 gallons, as they can grow up to 12 inches in length and need ample swimming space.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable water conditions with a temperature range of 75-82°F (24-28°C), a pH level of 6.5-7.5, and soft to moderately hard water. Use a good filtration system to ensure water quality.

  3. Substrate: Choose fine sand or rounded gravel substrate, which allows eels to burrow and exhibit natural behaviors.

  4. Hiding Spots: Provide hiding spots like caves, PVC pipes, or driftwood. Peacock Eels are shy and appreciate shelter.

  5. Tank Mates: Peacock Eels are generally peaceful but can be finicky eaters. They are best kept with other non-aggressive fish that won't outcompete them for food.

  6. Diet: Peacock Eels are carnivores. Their diet should include live or frozen foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, and small crustaceans. They may also accept high-quality sinking pellets.
